Travis Basevi Travis first started with Cricinfo during the 1994-95 Ashes, when the staff got bored of publishing his stats and averages contributions. He soon turned it into a full-time job, building Statsguru and the Cricinfo and Scrum content management systems. Along the way he abandoned Australia in preference for living in London, although his sporting allegiances haven't made a similar change beyond a QPR season ticket.
